7/9/2018

In this episode I wearily walk you through the swiss cheese model that led to having to reinstall P3D. During my ramblings I cover LatinVFR’s BWI, FSDreamTeams’ Charlotte, Drzewiecki Design’s Seattle and New York and the good old QW 787. All this as I limp along in a 737 leg from Austin to Seattle in FSX. Care to ride along?
